NASCAR 2019 - Bold Prediction Thread

    A New Year is upon us and it won't be long before drivers take the green flag for the start of racing at Daytona International Speedway. With that said, it's time for those that visit the racing-forums.com board to step up and post a BOLD PREDICTION concerning the upcoming 2019 NASCAR racing season.

    Up until last season, one and only one prediction was allowed to be submitted by each player for the sake of simplicity in keeping track of the predictions. However, beginning last year multiple predictions by a player were allowed with the concept being that making multiple predictions is that much more bold. Multiple predictions will be accepted again this year but each player is limited to a maximum of three.

    As predictions for all three NASCAR series (Gander Outdoors Truck, Xfinity, Monster Energy NASCAR Cup) are acceptable, the deadline for a given prediction will be the green flag at Daytona for the race series that the prediction concerns. Consequently, predictions must concern events that happen from the time that the green flag flies at Daytona until the checkered flag flies at Homestead.

    Posted predictions will be compiled and then posted periodically throughout January and February until a final list is posted on February 17th, the date of the Daytona 500.

    Throughout the race season the list will be updated periodically as to which predictions have been so far proven to be true or false. After the season's final races at Homestead, a list of predictions proven to be entirely true will be posted for all to vote on as to which true prediction was the most bold.

    For those making multiple predictions in their post, all individual predictions must be proven true in order for the entire prediction to be considered as the most bold
    .

    Before making your prediction, check previous predictions to avoid making the same one that had been posted earlier. If identical predictions are made, only the first one to be posted will be accepted.

    A list of previous winners of the game is as follows:

    2011 - 46.2% - @dpkimmel2001 - Paul Menard will win his first Cup race with RCR in 2011

    2012 - 50.0% - @FenderBumper - Brad Keselowski wins 5 or more races

    2013 - 47.2% - @BobbyFord - Matt Kenseth will get 5 wins in the JGR #20

    2014 - 72.5% - @Wrangler1 - HMS (5, 24, 48, and 88) WILL NOT be among the final four eligible for the title

    2015 - apparently lost due to the Board crashing

    2016 - 43.5% - @Zerkfitting - Tony Stewart will win a race this (2016) season

    2017 - 56.1% - @SlicedBread22 - No Chevy's in the Final (Championship) Four

    2018 - 47.6% - @Snappy D - Matt Kenseth is driver of the #6 car by the 2nd half of the year

    GOOD LUCK TO ALL !!!!

    Rumor has it that last year's champion, @Snappy D, borrowed this hat before making his winning prediction . . .

    I'll take that to mean that the Cup champion is at least 23, and no more than 26, years of age on the day of the last race of the year.

    What exactly does "dominate the Cup series" mean ?

    Most trips to Victory Lane ?

    By a playoff team, I'll take that to mean the same owner/driver partnership.

    Meaning that the #78 team and #41 team of 2018 are already guaranteed not to make the playoffs in 2019.

    If we make multiple predictions they all have to come true right?
     
  13. pjmolo

    pjmolo Director of driver attitude adjustments . . .

    That is, of course, Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, and Martin Truex Jr.

    I'm going to add

    Truex finishes the season with the lowest average finish of the JGR cars.

    I might end up making this my only prediction

    As I see several somewhat vague predictions being submitted, I strongly suggest that they be as specific as possible.

    Trust me, this will end up benefiting both me and you in the long run.

    Also, if you make a prediction and then follow it up with another one, specify if the follow-up prediction is in place of, or in addition to, the earlier prediction.

    Bubba and Byron both get their first cup win, and AJ Allmendinger drives in more than 5 races this year.

    Yep, I think they'll win the majority of races. Not a total blowout. But I think they'll win 15.

    Based upon your response, I'm taking your "Toyota will dominate the Cup series" prediction and adding "and will win at least 15 races" to it.

    okee dokee ?

    Molo, disregard my prediction of Byron winning, others have said that already. I'll just go with my first prediction.

    2019 NASCAR Champion Chase Elliott wins seven or more races, including Homestead.

    Granted, Byron winning his first race was previously predicted but, like yours, it was part of a multiple-part prediction and not a stand alone prediction.

    So your original prediction is acceptable if you'd like to stick with it.

    Ryan Blaney will win more races than both of his Penske teammate's combined total. (this includes the 3 non-points paying races)
